The Noahs Ark was once run by an ex professional boxer, Tom Cartwright, who stood no nonsense from anyone.
Tom was rudely awoken one night by a figure he took to be an intruder. Naturally he brought his boxing skills to bear and attempted to floor the man standing by his bed. As his fists passed straight through the young man, he vanished into thin air.
Three ghosts are said to haunt the Pie Factory. The most active is known as Nobby, a former landlord who chose to hang himself in the cellar. He is seen wearing a long black cloak and is by no means restricted to the cellar. Nobby has the rather unfortunate habit of pulling at men’s clothing especially in the gentleman’s toilet!
The Fountain Inn in Tipton is well known locally for being associated with the legendary boxer, William Perry, known as The Tipton Slasher. He is reputed to have used the attic of the pub for training. This may explain the ghostly figure of a man dressed in shorts with a full moustache who has been seen here.
